These gardens were designed by Edward Lutyens to commemorate the dead of the Irish Regiments in the Great War 1914-1919. Sadly they went into decline and were virtually abandoned up to the 1980's. Happily with the Peace Process and the realignment of Anlo Irish relations they can now assume their righful place in Irish history. The recent visit by H.M.The Queen has highligted their importance. A delightful place to stroll and enjoy the tranquility amidst the surrounding frenetic traffic. Close to the nearby historic Kilmainham Gaol and King's Hospital Museum of Modern Art. If you are not familiar with the Island Bridge area it would be advisable to get precise instructions on location before you set out to visit.
